What Is Infection Control?
Indoor surfaces and air may look and smell clean. But time and again it may be contaminated with harmful microorganisms that contain airborne and viral diseases. It is contagious and spreads from person to person in various common ways which include:
- Breathing in air-borne droplets from infected person
- Consuming food or water contaminated with a virus
- Indirect transmission from person to person possibly from pests such as mosquito, tick, or rats
- Touching surfaces containing viruses (cross contamination)
We often hear the quote prevention is better than cure, which we couldn’t emphasize more when it comes to airborne and viral diseases. Infected person can have life-threatening complications, such as dehydration, bacterial pneumonia, and other secondary bacterial infections and are especially riskier for those who are young or very old. There are many ways to prevent you and people you care about from getting these deadly diseases.
